Bob’s Red Mill ~ Why I Am A Customer

Bobs_Red_Mill_Natural_Foods_Logo

Over the past month I have been sampling Bob’s Red Mill Flours. I have to say I was not crazy about the price, but once I learned more about this company and what they stand for, I knew that customers are getting their money’s worth. The ingredients and care that go into each bag is why I will continue to purchase the Bob’s Red Mill brand over others.

Did you know? “Bob’s Red Mill America’s Best Baking Flour™ is unbleached, unbromated white flour milled from certified organic, U.S.—grown wheat. It is not enriched with any additives. Bob’s Red Mill Ivory Wheat™ Flour is 100% stone ground from organic whole grain hard white wheat berries. Hard white whole wheat is a new variety of identity-preserved wheat that is quickly growing in popularity. America’s Best Baking Flour™ Organic Whole Wheat Flour is 100% stone ground from certified organic, U.S.—grown hard red. Nothing is lost in the process of grinding the flour—one pound of wholesome whole wheat berries go into the mill, and one pound of nutritious whole wheat flour comes out. The bran, germ and endosperm of the wheat kernel are all included. Our Organic Whole Wheat Flour is rich in dietary fiber and provides 7 grams of protein per serving. It is a good source of essential minerals including phosphorus, magnesium, zinc and iron.” This is just a peak into the wholesome goodness that Bob’s Red Mill has to offer!

Our family, as others say, is an adventurous one! We love going on day trips, familiar favorite spots, and of course, exploring new ones! This year we made the decision to get Gold Season Passes to Virginia’s premiere amusement part, Kings Dominion. It made the most sense for us to purchase the gold pass since we know we would want to come back again and again. [Read more…]

Over the past weeks, I have been using Vitamin C in my daily skin care routine, and I have noticed great results! My skin can always use a little more moisture and who doesn’t need some more Vitamin C? I was looking forward to trying out Elleda’s Organic Vitamin C 20% Serum Formula from Elleda Skincare, and it didn’t disappoint! The serum is a potent mix of 20% Vitamin C, Botanical Hyaluronic Acid and nourishing Vitamin E and Jojoba Oil that work together to support healthy, beautiful skin! After only the third day I noticed my skin was tighter and more vibrant. It is not oily or greasy; it blends so evenly into your skin. [Read more…]

That means they pick, crack, and pack fresh young coconuts directly at the source. Once the coconuts are cleaned, the delicate water inside is flash pasteurized (and occasionally its’s mixed with all-natural fruit puree) then poured into a shelf-stable Tetra Pak®.
